Nice article. Ive always believed what the article included. Get the casual fans there some way or another and put a quality product on the ice and most people will enjoy the excitement of the game and come back for more. Best way is to have a packed house where the crowd is loud and into the games. The players feed off of all the fans as well. We had some good crowds last year in Roanoke, it makes a total difference in the enjoyment of the games for everybody. Some of the best times were by a promotion our echl team would do back in the day. $5 dollar tickets for everyone to get in for one game a year they called "Pack the Roundhouse Night". Nothing like every seat filled and close to 9,000 loud fans. It brought the casual fan out and im sure a few of them are hardcore fans now. I like your teams new owners they seem to know what they are doing and I surely hope they turn the attendance around so we can be rivals in the league for a long time. Glad to see owners are helping them out to, like they should be. Nobody in the league is really close enough to steal any other teams fan bases. So they should all be sharing tips with each other to help grow the stability of the league. Getting close to season, just a little over a month and a week. Im ready for our first showdown October 20th!!!!!!!!
I agree with everything you ar saying WLGT. I've also have met the owners over a couple beers at a swamp dog's game. They will improve the attendance. They've already added cameras and show replays on the marquee. With Jeff Longo and his experience in the hockey world, I see good things in the furture for our Marksmen. I'm looking forward to hockey.
